    It seems like since getting my phone, it's almost as if the sweat from my hand has burned through the matte finish on my phone and there are now areas where the cover appears to have shiny spots. Anybody else have this problem?

    I wonder what's causing it? It's very strange!

    the cause is because it has a matte finish, matte is textured. The more you hold, move, rub , in and out of your pocket etc the matte tsarts to become worn and smooths down.

    It's not some weird defect of the plastic, it's just unfortunately a by product of matte finishes that will always happen.

    Yup. Look at many keyboard keys, laptop wrist-wrests (right next to the touchpad) and other things like that. More use, more wear. That's just what happens.

    Yours is a week old and the matte finish has worn down? Are you sure it's worn and not something you need to wipe off? It seems to me that you'd have to constantly be vigorously rubbing it on something 24/7 to get it to wear smooth in a week...

    No offense intended, but if your hand oil is burning the matte finish on anything plastic smooth in one week, you're a mutant and should join the X-Men. :D

    I'm a big fan of the Lysol/Clorox disinfecting wipes, I use them to clean everything from my computers to my bicycles. Might want to get a tub of those and see if you can wipe off whatever acid leaks from your hands. :D

    Replacing the case is not for the faint of heart. I also find it really strange that the finish is wearing in a week... something is not normal there. I recommend the Nokia case... it's really nice and fits great.
